    I guess it’s all relative, compared to round here you probably only get about 30-40% of the numbers in south shropshire. Clee hill is my go to; could easily on a peak summers day go up and see less than ten people up the hills (maybe titterstone the busiest spot) but it’s rarely too bad. Failing that cardington isn’t too busy to do caer caradoc and on the west side of cardingmill you’ll not see too many others (pulverbatch) but aside from the national trust car park at cardingmill or church stretton; it’s sufficiently open enough to not get too busy if you avoid the prime walking routes 

    Clee Hills area is a lot closer to Stourbridge than it is to me. It's a nice walk though its a long time since I've been up either Clee; Wenlock Edge has some nice walks too round there.

    Pulverbatch is quite a way from Worcestershire! But yes going up the Long Mynd from that side is usually much quieter than from the Stretton direction. Bridges, Medlicott, Wentnor all good starting points. Similarly going up the Stiperstones from Snailbeach/Blakemoor rather than the car park by the nature reserve.

    Tbf for the first time in years North Staffs (Talke / Kidsgrove) on the Cheshire Border has done OK this week. Yeah a far cry from the 80s and early 90s, but beggars can't be chosey lol. 

    Amazing though how no matter how much we get, Crewe always seems to miss out on the heavy stuff..

    Wow. The GFS raw output is nuts! Way, way colder than the BBC and Met Office forecasts even from day 1!

    Hi Guys...

    Snow (a couple of inches last night) has been melting. with a temp of 1.5C now.

    However the rain showers are turning wintry again (sleet falling now), and it looks as if we may have another top up in a couple of hours...

    With the 850's forecast to fall again later, it may well be another interesting day.

    Off back to bed now!

    For those upset about melting snow, spare a thought for the Oxon Warks border!  Despite elevation up to 200m barely the thinnest of dustings whilst ten miles up the road they’re having snowball fights!

    Oh well, winter’s barely started.  More to follow!  Keep them piccies coming in.  😊

    No snow melt here so far today, but it’s forecast to be a degree higher than recent days so expecting more of a thaw.

    cannot believe forecast on models, what the hell! UKMO and EC milder with a whimper from Friday 8th, GFS maybe few days later

    EC and UKMO won't be wrong, not really FI either

    It kinda had a sense of inevitability to it really. So very difficult to get prolonged cold in the UK locked in for days never mind a week plus! I'm kindly just happy with what we've had, some great walks and some top up snowfall at times. I'm sure we will get a chance again and as has been said, the upper atmospheric situation is causing the models some grief, so lets just see where we're at in a few days time. I personally don't expect much this week; i think the snow may very well be all but gone in the next 24 hours, but im weirdly in a way content with what we've had. I am cautiously optimistic the other end of this month may give us another bite of the cherry, but i think we might have a bit of a damp squib inbetween, the fact the polar vortex is not as angry as it was nor the atlantic train of low pressure systems, always gives the chance for another high to develop over iceland or scandi.

    I appreciate my post is very IMBY, as i know a vast swathe of the country hasnt seen a flake yet, and i've been all to used to that in years gone by. Looked the ideal setup and has bypassed the rea.

    Apparently it’s normal to have a brief spell of more westerly/Atlantic dominated conditions immediately after a SSW, and then in a few weeks we should see a more blocked pattern develop. Just a question of which side of the blocking we end up on.

    The trolling and over-reaction by some over on the model thread is ridiculous. Some clearly on a wind up and others just reacting and throwing toys out of the pram. It's the calm, subjective one's over there that I tend to pay attention to. 

    Anyway, wait for the 12z first and we'll see where we are then.

    Not really an over reaction, EC and UKMO show it getting milder next Fri, with boring high pressure and very quick thaw, only GFS keeps it cold, everyone knows GFS won't be right over those big 2, not really FI either

    It is bedwetting when some over there are already writing off the rest of the winter. Pathetic.

    Gfs sticking to its guns on latest run. But I believe you will be right anyway if UKMO and ECM are right wich looks likely it will be short lived hopefully. Even more important to get out and enjoy the weather we have now. 6 days of lying snow is not to shabby and still at least 5 days of cold left.

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
